Antony Donaldson

Antony Donaldson’s friendships with Royal College of Art students Patrick Caulfield, Allen Jones and Peter Phillips put him firmly in the vanguard of the Pop Art movement in London in the 1960s. Born in 1939, Donaldson was chosen in 1964 for the landmark New Generation exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery, which included Allen Jones and David Hockney, and he was also the first Pop Artist to sell his work to the Tate. In later years Donaldson took up sculpture in a variety of media – his most famous piece is the giant Buddha-like head of Alfred Hitchcock, Master of Suspense, in the courtyard of the Gainsborough Film Studios in London.
